Chibok conducts its first WAEC for the first time in 6-years

For the first time in six years, secondary schools in Chibok, Borno state, have participated in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WAEC).

Abdul-Khalifa Ibrahim, acting general officer commanding (GOC), 7 division, Nigerian army, disclosed this while receiving members of the Education in Emergency Working Group (EiEWG) Nigeria, on Thursday in Maiduguri, the Borno capital.

Schools in Chibok were shut down in 2014 after Boko Haram insurgents abducted more than 200 students from the Government Girls Secondary School in the area.

While the federal government has secured the release of some of the girls, a few others are still in the custody of the insurgents.
